Heal Complex Pain and Post Surgical Issues with Trauma Rehab and Healing
Trauma Rehab and Healing for Upper Extremity Injuries
Upper extremity trauma is one of the most common types of injuries seen in emergency medicine. These physical injuries may be minor, serious, or life threatening and may require rehab after treatment. They are also typically accompanied by some level of loss, fear, anxiety, sense of insecurity and loss of normal function. These aspects also bring the old wounds and suppressed pain to the forefront.
As a certified hand and occupational therapist I worked in a very fast paced clinic for the majority of my career I was treating lots of severe physical trauma and pain in my patients.
However, it was slow going, and people did get better from the physical aspect but there was always something missing that we were just not able to tap into in that fast paced world. The emotional trauma, the fear, anxiety, insecurity of how to move forward. Working in my own way now offers me the ability to really dig into these areas with my patients and because of that people heal much more fully and quickly! Pain is not only physical but it is also emotional, mental and energetic!
My approach to Trauma Rehab and Healing is very different. I integrate my 23 years of training and science-based treatment with intuitive energy healing to help you heal from within.
What they say
Constant pain increases our nervous systems response and our energy becomes out of balance because of it
Who is this for?
What to expect:
A customized plan for your specific injury/trauma
Physical /hands on care if in person
Customized exercises and functional activities to maximize your recovery
Giving you clear concise information about your injury, how to deal with it and step by step things that you can and cannot do throughout the rehab process
Helping you overcome any fear that may be limiting you from getting back to doing what you love
Re-education of using your body correctly to eliminate any compensatory patterns that have developed
Energy clearing to work on releasing the trauma of the injury
What does it include?
An hour and a half evaluation/assessment. This includes a full upper body assessment, where your symptoms are limiting you in your daily life, where your nervous system’s energy is at (because it’s usually a bit frazzled when we are dealing with pain or trauma), education and initial treatment.
12 follow-up sessions that are up to an hour in length focused directly on your goals. You will NOT come in and do exercises that you already know how to do (unless we need to review them) or do busy work. Your time spent with me is for us to be working together, for me to do the things you cannot do on your own. Sessions to be used within 6 weeks of initial evaluation/assessment.
Working with me comes with an expectation that you will continue your work in between our sessions. I am your guide and here to help you with the things you can’t do, need education/adaptations/ideas on and to facilitate the energetic healing, but ultimately you are the one responsible for your healing.
Some rehab supplies are provided and some will be the responsibility of the client.
Depending on your progress fewer or additional sessions may be necessary which we will discuss throughout your care.
